Right of Way Information

When you have been notified of right-of-way controlling of trees and vegetation:

We understand that no one wants to lose their trees, but please be assured that right-of-way trimming is a necessary step WRVEC takes to ensure greater safety for workers and the public, and to ensure more reliable service for its members. Trees are one of the leading causes of unplanned service interruptions, including both sustained and momentary interruptions. A WRVEC representative will be available throughout the process when the trimmers are in your area to respond to any questions or concerns.

Missouri legislators passed revised statute 537.340 on August 28, 2009, allowing electric suppliers operating distribution lines the authority to maintain power line right-of-way by trimming, removing and controlling trees and other vegetation within 15 feet of either side of the centerline of electric lines, potentially energized at or below 34.5 kilovolts, will be removed per the statute. While the bill authorizes a 60 foot removal area, WRVEC chooses to restrain cutting whenever possible to 30 feet. The bill, Senate Bill No. 958, Section 537.240, can be read in its entirety here.

Our goal at White River Valley Electric Cooperative is to provide safe, reliable electricity and keep our member rates as low as possible. With the help of our members, our right-of-way program will keep our lines clear of trees and overgrown vegetation while reducing future cost to members in terms of health, finances and time. If you have further questions, please feel free to call Brian McCoy, Right-of-Way Supervisor at 417-335-9264 or email This email address is being protected from spambots.
